Cherry Blossoms 桜

Cherry blossoms were in full bloom around my sister ‘s house

I went to my sister ‘s house after a long absence for our father’ s seven-year memorial. On the way there I saw many cherry trees in full bloom.  My sister’s house is only two hours away by car from here, but there are no cherry blossoms around my house yet.

I have heard that many foreigners associate Japan with the color pink.  It must be an image of cherry blossoms. The trees are beautiful in full bloom, but I like the time when the flowers are scattering and dancing.

The cherry blossoms that are in full bloom now will be scattered in a week.  By that time the cherry blossoms in our garden will begin to bloom.  We can enjoy the cherry blossoms for an even longer period of time if we drive to the north.
